About the Trip

Looking for fun in the sun? How about a multicultural experience? San Diego has it all! Year round sunshine, urban adventures with a laid back attitude, incredible beaches, plenty of outdoor activities, award winning theatres, the largest urban cultural park in the USA, and a world famous zoo.

Your adventure in San Diego holds endless possibilities – new friends, fond memories, and of course, lots of sunshine! We offer a variety of activities and resources to help you make the most of your time. Meet and interact with people from all over the world and learn about their travels, adventures, and diverse cultures.

The group has the option of either our Downtown location, located in the heart of the historic Gaslamp Quarter, just minutes away from the Convention Center, Seaport Village, Balboa Park, museums, and the San Diego Zoo. The hostel is a short bus ride to a number of popular beaches. Or, our Point Loma location which is located in a quiet neighborhood that is 2 miles from Ocean Beach, a community which has biking, swimming, and national monuments and parks. Sea World, the Zoo, Balboa Park, Old Town, and the Convention Center are all just a short drive or bus ride away from this hostel.
